Finalising the Preliminary Task and Evaluation Questions

Here is my video of continuity.

The following camera technique that I have used are Low Angle and a  High Angle

I used  the Low Angle technique to create a sense of dominance when lilli (the girl) leaves the room in anger. I used the High Angle technique when Ben (the boy) was opening the bag this creates a sense as vulnerability.

I have learnt to use the following continuity editing rules which is the 180 degree rule, Match on action and shot reverse shot.

I used the 180 rule so the audience doesn’t get confused which person is which because the actors will be seen on the same side they were first at, here is an example of the 180 degree rule:Image result for 180 degree rule

The next rule is match on action which is when you cut to a different shot from your original shot that matches it, for example an actor opens the door half open  then a second shot from the other side of the door sees the actor with the door half open as well, this is Match on Action. Here is an image of it.

The last one is shot reverse shot which is showing the conversation of the two actors from there perspective. Here is an example of it:

I have used the following tools/techniques which are razor tool, select tool and fast cutting

I used these tools to cut the shot in to smaller intervals so the scene doesn’t become slow and boring. I used the select tool to order the shots in the correct way so the continuity makes sense.

If I was to do this project again I would record more shots from the same angle so I have more footage too use so that any acting mistakes that causes continuity errors can easily be fixed be using other footage.
